The renowned director, Paul WS Anderson, who has helmed movies like Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil, is all gearing up for his upcoming next, titled Monster Hunter.
Popular video game company, Capcom has shown interest to turn this popular game into a full-length feature film. Capcom in collaboration with Anderson, have secured the movie rights and will soon start working on the project.
"An ordinary man in a dead end job discovers that he is actually the descendant of an ancient hero. He must travel to a mystical world to train to become a Monster Hunter, before the mythical creatures from that world destroy ours." Anderson said about the project.
He continued, "It's on the level of like a Star Wars movie, in terms of world creation. There are no real central characters so it's a bit like when we first approached Resident Evil and imposed our own characters and story on that world."
"I think this is a perfect IP for us to do exactly that same thing again. The Monster Hunter world includes these huge deserts that make the Gobi Desert look like a sandbox, and they have ships that sail through the sand." Anderson added.
"These full-on galleons, but rather than sailing on the ocean waves, they sail through waves of sand."Concluded the director.
